We're just launching our first training Webinar, so we'll be listening to you to better understand what questions you might have. In the meantime, below are a few answers to questions you might find useful:
To test your browser, use this "browser test". This site was designed to run on most modern, updated browsers, operating systems and devices. It has been tested on Macs® and PCs, as well as on mobile devices supporting Apple MacOS® (iPhones and iPads) and Android™ devices. We recommend you use a Chrome™, Safari®, Firefox™, or Microsoft Edge® browser, and always keep the browser and operating system updated to the most-recent versions. This will help ensure the site functions optimally, and it keeps your security up-to-date, protecting your data. We recommend you DO NOT USE Microsoft Internet Explorer®, as Microsoft has discontinued the browser and is replacing it with Microsoft Edge.

To facilitate ease-of-use and reduce clutter, this site uses pop-up windows. The first place you'll notice this is on the "Create Account" page where we ask you to choose your timezone. You'll also see it in other places, including much of the content delivery within a given product. Please be sure to disable your browser's pop-up blocker when using this site. Once you turn-off or disable the browser's pop-up blocker, you may need to close and relaunch the browser before the change takes effect. If you don't know how to do this, ask the tech support team at your organization, or you can refer to these brief instructions for some of the leading Web browsers:
- Google Chrome: Click the Chrome menu button (three dots in the upper right-hand corner). Select "Settings". Click "Advanced" at the bottom of the page. (If "Advanced" is already selected, additional options will be available below it.) Under "Privacy and security", click "Content" settings. Click "Popups" to unselect option. Click "Blocked (recommended)" to unselect option. This may also be under "Site Settings" > "Permissions" > "Pop-ups and redirects".
- Mozilla Firefox: Click the "Open menu" button (three bars) in the upper right-hand corner. Click "Options" or "Preferences". Select "Privacy & Security"". Uncheck "Block pop-up windows". Close and relaunch the browser.
- Safari: Click the Safari menu. Select "Preferences" from the drop-down. Click on "Security". Uncheck "Block pop-up windows".
- Microsoft Edge: Click the "More" button in the top right (the one with the three dots). Click "Settings". Scroll down and click "View Advanced Settings." Click the slider under the heading that says "Block pop-ups." to "Off".
To create an account, click on the "Create Account" button in the top right-hand corner of any page, then fill out the form and submit to register. We recommend you create a "strong" password unique to only this login and change it periodically. See more below in the answer covering "strong" passwords.
If you already have an account, click the "Log In" button at the top right corner of any page. Enter your e-mail and password. You will then be logged into the the Portal.
Verify your email address is entered correctly in the "Log In" email field. Check to ensure your CAPS LOCK is off on your keyboard. Make sure you input your password correctly. Sometimes there is a typo (incorrect or additional characters) within the password entered. The password is case-sensitive, so make sure you use a capital or lowercase that matches the original password. Check to see if there are any additional keystrokes or if you've accidentally added a word space before or after the password string — sometimes a password is copied and pasted from another document into the password field, pasting an errant word space or return. Important: We don't recommend storing passwords in a document on your computer, as this might be a security risk. If you recently reset your password, there is a possibility your browser is inserting the previously cached password. If this happens, reset you cache, close your browser and relaunch. Then attempt re-entering your password. If everything fails, you can reset your password. See the answer to the next question below.
If you forgot your password, you can click the "Log In" button without entering a password. It will provide a page with a "Forgot Password" link to reset your log in credentials. Or you can go directly to that page here. You need to be logged out of your account to access the "Forgot Password" function.
When you are logged in, click “Profile". In the profile section, you can edit your password and update your interests. Selecting your interests will personalize the “Recommended for You” section.

The Quiz indicates there are more questions than what I see on my screen. Where are the missing questions?

You can always view what's currently in your shopping cart and check out by clicking on the "Cart" link in the left side menu on any page.
Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover.
No. To further protect your credit card information, we never save your credit card details in our system for future use.
We currently do not provide refunds. If you run into a problem that hasn't been resolved, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and provide your name, the product name, and what problem your experiencing. We'll attempt to respond within two business days.
A "strong" password needs to be more than 8 characters and complex — with upper and lower cases letters, numbers and special characters and NO number sequences. An example of a strong password could be "k7x!4gT25gx39kpa#"". An example of a poor (weak) password that you wouldn't want to use would be "red12345" or "password". Do not use any of our examples for your own password. Come up with a long, complex password for yourself, and ideally, change it periodically. We also recommend that the password is unique to this account and not the same as a login for another website. When logged in, you can change your password by clicking on "Profile".

We'll attempt to respond within two business days.
